The European Biomass Conference and Exhibition represents one of the key events in Europe and worldwide for companies and professionals operating at the top end of the biomass and bioenergy sector. This year the event will be hosted in Copenhagen, Denmark, a clearly ideal location for the 21st edition of this world-class event.
Denmark is, in fact, globally acknowledged as a hub for cleantech companies and as an example of sustainable development in renewables; it features leading companies and research organizations in large-scale applications of biomass such as co-firing, as well as in small-scale applications such as co-generation, biomass for heating, biogas and algae, and it also houses important world players in the development of 2nd generation biofuels.
The City of Copenhagen has set the goal to be CO2-neutral in 2025 – as the first capital in the world. In light of this, the Conference, by bringing the latest science to a wider audience, will help to keep up the momentum in reducing CO2 emissions, both in terms of the technological development and the political goals. In a future low carbon economy bioenergy can play a significant role and can contribute substantially to the global energy supply.
What can you expect?
The event will have something for everybody: whether you are an energy newcomer or specialist, following global policy-making trends or focusing on basic research or the manufacturing industry. More than 240 plenary and oral presentations, more than 460 visual presentations, numerous parallel events offering a deep insight into specific issues and current hot topics, a dynamic and stimulating industry exhibition and many social gatherings will be open to you during this annual meeting point for the international biomass community.
As every year the conference programme will touch on all the different subjects of the biomass sector along the week. A growing number of speeches and visual presentations will be focused on how to assess and ensure sustainability along biomass value chains, by means of certification, standardization and enacting correct policies. This year a special session on sustainability with an interactive debate will be organized.
